Patrice Desilets was the one that brought the Ezio in the Assassins Creed games. The Ezio games were the high point in the Assasins Creed series and they are still regarded as the best AC games. Patrice Desilets talked about what he thought about the AC games after brotherhood and his response was very interesting indeed.

Patrice Desilets mentioned that since Brotherhood, he did not find the AC games fun anymore. The following is what he had to say regarding the matter:

I don’t really have an opinion because I didn’t really play the series [after Brotherhood]. Look, I tried Assassin’s Creed III for two hours, and then I realised that I was working instead of just playing, and so I said, “You know what? I’m having no fun, no pleasure, so I better quit.” Since then, and I say this with a smile, but I shield myself against this question.

It is understandable why Patrice Desilets does not like to respond to such questions and that people want to know what he thinks about the AC series. He went on the mention the following regarding the matter:

Everybody wants to know what I think about those games, right? But I didn’t play them, because I can’t… they’re no fun [to me]. You have to understand, it’s Ubisoft’s game and it can do whatever it wants with the series. I don’t mind.

When it comes to the Assassins Creed games, I think that all the Ezio games were the best. I did enjoy the original as well. After that, I particularly enjoyed Black Flag. Since then, it was less about the Assassins and more about an RPG game in general.

I did love AC Odyssey but then again, the Assassins Creed element was missing from the game. Yes, it was an epic journey that I enjoyed thoroughly and I still play it from time to time but the Ezio factor is just not there anymore. Let us know about your favorite Assassins Creed games!

  1. I love all Assassin’s creed Games.
    Assassin’s Creed Director’s cut Altaïr ibn la ahad Nothing is true Everything is Permitted
    Assassin’s Creed 2, Revelations and Brotherhood Ezio Auditore, Unity and Rogue Arno Victor Dorian and Shay Patrick Cormac, Black Flag and Freedom Cry Adewale and Edward James Kenway, III and Libération Connor Kenway and Aveline, Syndicate and Origins Jacob and Evie Frye, Bayek and Aya, Odissey Alexios and Kassandra.

  2. Honestly I could never get into the early AC games. They were no fun for me. They were too rigid too forced, required stealth. I like stealth, but sometimes I want to charge into a fort or outpost or warehouse and just start slashing away. Most of the time I like to sneak but sometimes ya just gotta go on a rampage.

    There was no room for diversity in the originals, no room for deviation beyond the black and white forced linear option of the games, and thats why the new game style is here to stay. People are tired of being told how they must play their games.

    This is also what makes the new AC games since Origins in my opinion really the only games worth really dedicating myself to. It was all the AC games before Origins that I felt, “Oh this feels like work, I better quit”.

    So ill answer that question with a smile every time, because I know the opposite of this entire article to be true, and how very wrong the author was.

    Can’t wait for AC Ragnarok/Valhalla/Vikings! Supposedly there’s even more choice based, even less stiffly linear forced gaming approach. I don’t like being a slave to my video games. Most of the gaming industry agrees with me, that’s why they make games the way they do now.

    More open world styled games than ever before, more beautiful, more free. Don’t be a slave to your game.

    • to each his own i guess. I don’t mind the big open worlds and RPG elements but that came at the cost of a good story. I couldn’t get into Origins, Syndicate, and Odyssey the way I did in early AC games.

  3. My favorite assassins creed game was Origins. Due to the fact it was brought up in the roots of Africa and the pyramids so much to explore now don’t get me wrong odyssey is dope but the ending kind of threw me off. AC Origins story line was more of a understanding to me when the assassins had no choice but to assassinate the one responsible for millions of deaths.
